Preview: Sheffield United vs. Fulham

Sports Mole previews the match between Sheffield United and Fulham in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Sheffield United will be hoping that they can claim their second Premier League scalp of the season when they host Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Blades netted a late winner against Aston Villa to progress through to the last 32, and manager Nigel Clough will be confident that the Yorkshire outfit can repeat their heroics against Fulham.

Clough could hand debuts to new signings Stefan Scougall and John Brayford, who have moved to Bramall Lane from Livingston and Cardiff City respectively.

Fulham come into the match on the back of three wins from their last seven games, but head coach Rene Meulensteen could rest players for their trip to the League One club.

Darren Bent could be handed a start in attack, while Damien Duff is in contention for a recall on the left-hand side of midfield.
